Hi there. I'm JD Hooge, designer and co-owner of Instrument, an independent digital creative agency in Portland, Oregon.
I've had several lives as a digital creative person. Spent many years coding, designing and running various companies—all thanks to the internet.
Waaaay back in the day, I ran a small company called Fourm with 3 partners. We also started the type foundry, Miniml. Flash people know what that is.
For the past 5 years, I've been running Instrument (alongside my 2 partners). We build digital brands and products for every screen.
Last year, we moved into our new office space. I've written about that here.
I'll start answering questions at 8:30am PST tomorrow (6/1). Ask me anything!
